By in large, most parents want their children to attend a four-year college. However, more often than not, affordability becomes a concern. In fact, for many families, it is a decision they agonize over.
Clearly, parents want what is best for their children, but they also do not want to saddle their children with tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of debt after graduation. Incredibly, many top colleges also come with an impressive tuition - something most working families are not impressed with.
This expense is a major concern for families across the country, and for this reason, parents will often guide their children toward state universities. Interestingly enough, this week I saw a link for Kiplinger’s Best Value in Public Colleges. Here, they list the top 100 best value colleges in the country.
New York State has nine colleges on the list, including #29 Stony Brook, an outstanding university right here on Long Island. If you plan on sending your child to college, you may want to access the link.
